This spring, we’re going back to our roots and resurrecting one of our most popular events: The Chichigua Fest. Save the date! Chichigua Fest 2019 is coming May 4th!
Casa de Campo Living’s Chichigua Fest will be a family-friendly event for kids of all ages. A Chichigua for those who don’t speak ‘Dominican’ means ‘kite’ and so the Chichigua Fest 2019 will be an afternoon of fun for all the family to come and show off their kite flying prowess, with an expected 200+ kites taking to the skies and Chichigua contests for homemade kites!
Our Chichigua Fest is for EVERYONE – and even if you don’t like flying kites you’re more than welcome to come along and enjoy the sun, drink, inflatable games and the party atmosphere….
‘ChiChiGua Fest‘ was inspired by what used to be an annual Altos de Chavon event, which was very popular among families and residents of Casa de Campo and La Romana. This is an annual tradition which we have decided to restart now! With Chichigua Fest 2019 we aim to lure Casa de Campo residents and families out of their own villas, to enjoy a day of sun, wind, and fun with their families, neighbors and friends. Casa de Campo is a huge community and Casa de Campo Living is here to help bring us all together!! Let’s start having fun!
There will be NO entrance fee to the event, or to take part in the Chichigua competitions. To take part in the competition you will be able to register ONLINE, spaces will be limited so this will be the ONLY way to guarantee your place. We are also hoping to hold a ‘kite-building workshop’ to help people build their own kites – materials will be included in the price of the workshop, more details COMING SOON!
NOT INTERESTED IN KITES? It doesn’t matter! The spirit of the event is to get people out and about and TOGETHER having fun – so if you don’t want to fly a kite, you would be more than welcome to join us, watch the competition, enjoy a drink or 2, eat from the food trucks, get on the inflatables, and more!
At this stage the event is still being planned and so we are still finalizing the fine points but one thing is for sure – it’s going to be a FUN afternoon! If you have any inquiries about the event, suggestions which could help us make it even better, or want to participate as a sponsor email us at [email protected]
We hope you’re as excited as we are!!
